Cupcakes! The husband of the couple that teach the Bible Study I attend, will occasionally become obsessed with certain food items. Several weeks ago, it was a particular egg salad sandwich he had eaten at church (we had a potluck soup and sandwich lunch at church) as well as a coconut cream pie from a different potluck several YEARS ago. His wife says he could not stop talking about these things. Now, since I am in charge of the snack, I have some control over what to bring, so to do his wife and him a favour, my mom made a coconut cream pie one week and he is positive that it is the same as the one he had at church. Except it’s not, since Mom has never brought a coconut cream pie to church, except once, last October, for Thanksgiving.
Lately, apparently, he has been talking about lemon meringue pie. Since I am always looking for ideas for snack, I thought this one had potential. One problem. I am not good at making pie crust. It turns out weird, and even though I follow the recipe, it is still not as it should be. But I am competent at cupcakes. And so I did a little searching and found this recipe for lemon meringue cupcakes. The frosting turned out more like a marshmallow frosting, than a meringue, but everyone said they were good, so it must be ok.
